The uAvonix SkyEcho is a portable ADS-B IN/OUT transceiver consistent with the UK CAA's Electronic Conspicuity standard. SkyEcho 2 transmits your aircraft position, altitude, course and speed to surrounding aircraft to improve awareness.

** ATTENTION: SkyEcho 2 must be RESET before AND after this software update (press and hold power button until LEDs blink white)

FEATURES:

ADS-B IN/OUT with FLARM Capability
SkyEcho includes FLARM and ADS-B receivers to receive position reports from other equipped aircraft and display them on in-flight applications, including ForeFlight Mobile, SkyDemon, EasyVFR, and AirMate.

See and Be Seen
UK CAA CAP-1391 allows light aircraft, gliders and balloons to see and be seen by other aircraft without equipping a traditional transponder.

Portable ADS-B
SkyEcho 2 is a portable ADS-B receive and transmit solution. With 20W transmit power, your 1090MHz ADS-B signal can be received up to 40NM away. Transmit functionality can be enabled or disabled depending on your flight location. The ADS-B receiver capability includes both 1090MHz and 978MHz UAT. Portable ADS-B transmit capability is currently only approved for use in the United Kingdom under CAP1391.

FLARM Reception Capability
Receive FLARM in the UK/EU natively with SkyEcho 2. When selected by the user, the UAT radio in SkyEcho 2 can be used as a FLARM receiver. FLARM traffic data is transmitted to participating EFB applications for display of FLARM traffic. SkyEcho 2 will translate the FLARM data onto your compatible EFB along with the ADS-B traffic.

Be Trusted with Certified GPS
SkyEcho 2 includes a TSO-C199 GPS transmitting a Source Integrity Level (SIL) value of 1. SIL values of one (1) enable certified avionics, TCAS, and ATC to process and display your aircraft position. Aircraft using uncertified sources transmitting SIL of zero (0) are typically discarded and not displayed by the avionics or ATC displays. The high-integrity, SBAS GPS with Fault Detection and Exclusion (FDE) also provides position data to the EFB application and correlates your position with received traffic for viewing on supported displays.

Integrated Altimeter
SkyEcho 2 includes an integrated baro altimeter. The altimeter correlates cabin pressure altitude to altitudes of nearby traffic to give you more accurate relative altitude alerts.

No Clutter Cockpit
The integrated uAvionix SkyEcho 2 battery removes cords and clutter from the cockpit and has enough capacity for up to 12 hours of flight time with the transmit function enabled.

Connect wirelessly to SkyEcho and receive live traffic on your GDL90 compatible EFB or EFIS for up to 4 devices simultaneously.

Service rating : Always excellent customer service. I don't care if the product or service can be purchased elsewhere; I'll buy from Mendelssohn for the peace of mind that if there is a problem, it will always be resolved quickly and without fuss.
Product : Only tried it once before the second lockdown! But it appears to work OK. (used with SkyDemon on an old iPad mini and iPhone 7s)

Service rating : Great service as usual!!
Product : Didnt get GPS acquisition initially. Emailed uAvionix Support and got a prompt reply. Needed a few hours to pickup up satellites in Europe. Since manufactured in US it comes with the US satellite horizon. Once that was done it worked perfectly

I appreciate that there was undoubtedly a large 'uptake' on the CAA EC Sky Echo 2 unit offer of rebate, but the website did state the units were in stock when I logged on to purchase a unit. I was surprised when I did not hear anything back for several days and emailed to enquire the status of my order. I received a prompt reply to say that there had been an overwhelming request to purchase and there would be a delay in re-stocking. In the event, a week later the unit arrived safely and well packaged. There was absolutely no instruction or User Manual included/supplied, which I consider just ludicrous. This is, fortunately, available on-line, but at the 499.99 price I expect better than this. With the current virus limitations to flying, I have been unable to test the efficacy of the instrument.

Service rating : Great product and perfect service from Mendelssohn. Thumbs up!
Product : SkyEcho greatly enhances awareness. Although its ADS-B out is not permitted outside of UK, "in" function works perfectly with SkyDemon and with addition of FLARM functionally adds a lot to a safety of my GA flying.
